Followed by an introduction to the the benefits of hip openers, enjoying rose tea and quarts crystals. You will then flow though a 60 minute vinyasa flow to bring heat and mobilisation to the body to allow the hips to start opening. Thereafter the group will finish with an hours yin practice with props to target depth and exploration of hip openers.
Why is it so important to open our hips?
With so many of us having office based jobs we are sat for long periods of time and the hips are flexed, and the hip flexors are shortened. This leads to tight hips, which increases the load and cause overuse of the spine. Tight hips can have a negative effect on other body parts and even lead to injury.
Your hips are the connection point of both your upper and lower body.
Improving our hip mobility and flexibility is not only beneficial for the hips themselves, but the body as a whole. Hip mobility is critical for healthy movement and injury prevention.
Additionally, opening our hips in yogic tradition is seen to release negative energy as the hips are seen as a storage hub for negative emotions and feelings.
